Named them Tomson and Johnson after the MD and CRNA (last names). We tried to explain that these are usually last names, but she insisted on them! Also just had a Satchel (Dad was a baseball fan). If my cousin would have had a boy, wanted to name him Troy Michael Emmit (then last name) after Dallas Cowboy players! He has 2 dogs named Ruben and Sierra (after the ex Tx Ranger!) Don't you love Talladega (sp?) Nights with Will Ferrell? The boys are named Walker and Texas Ranger!!!!!

Sister and Brother (first names for fraternal twins, parents are fundamental Baptist I believe.)
Tabitha Katz (nickname is Tabby)and her sister Allie
Beanie for a first name
Femaley (I am not kidding)
Richard Robert (You guessed it, his nickname was Ricky Bobby like the character off "Taladega Nights")
Lee P. Not altogether unusual but when I asked mom what the P stood for while making conversation she said "Pi$$er". She wasn't a very happy person and said his first name was supposed to be Lil' since that's what he did all over her when they placed him on her stomach after delivery. She then told me the "nosy nurses" at the hospital called in a social worker to talk to her about her "disposition" toward the child so she just changed it to Lee to make everyone happy. Yeesh.
Dodo (That's my aunt, Lola. Her younger sibs couldn't pronounce the L and it came out Dodo. The lady is in her 70s and we still call her that.)
Haden Wright Sommer Pierce. Sounds like a law firm.
Three nurses that I work with who joke they all trained with Flo Nightingale are named Kitty, P*ssy, and Flossy. We all call them "Miss ___" when we address them.
I'm pregnant with my first child and we've decided on Jack for the first name. The middle name took some time to figure out. We at first thought Russell would be a good middle name (named after my DH's late grandfather) until his grandmother pointed out the obvious error that would be.
Parents should remember that nicknames will also stick with the child way beyond their childhood. My name is Elizabeth but my parents and grandparents nicknamed me Betty. I had a great-aunt named Betty also. So they called her Big Betty and me Little Betty. To this day, I still am called Little Betty by that side of the family. They even address gifts and cards that way. I like it though, even though I am six inches taller and about 50lbs heavier than Big Betty.
My poor Dad was called "Eddie" when he was a child and his family still call him that today.

The really funny thing is that when I was little, I misheard the name and called him "Cheese!"Chief (boy)

I did have to laugh the first time I was told to call and ask for Gay Midget (she takes care of temp employees payroll)

My cousins grandfather on their dad's side is Steven Stevens - why would you do that to your child?

Then, she named her second son, my second sons (from my marriage to him) middle name. That was confusing wasn't it?
So my boys names are Nicholas Brandon, and their son is Brandon Lynn
and my child is Jacob Alan, and their second son is Alan Lee. Weird girl. Who wants to copy cat the ex-wife? Oh, and my middle name is Lynn, also. And I did make sure she knew all this before she went ahead with it.
My friend named her son Storm, and 5 years later named her daughter Summer.
